This is an ORIGINAL Half-Sheet MOVIE POSTER - NOT A REPRODUCTION ! It was created for use in a theatre to promote the engagement of this Motion Picture in 1953!
This approx. 22x28" Movie Item:
BWANA DEVIL ~ U.S. Half-Sheet Poster Style "B" NSS# 53/102 -~ UNITED ARTISTS PICTURES ~ 1953
This poster from ARCH OBLER's hugely-successful film - credited as the first commercial 3-D feature film - is in very good condition. It has some yellowing and darkening at the very edges and edge wear. There's a light, angled crease at the top center partly towards the right edge. An approx. 3" horizontal tear in the right (white) border ; approx. 1/2" tears at the bottom right and center edge and top left and corner ; approx. 2" vertical tear in the left top edge. Minor surface wear and signs of handling.
This rare poster holds an historically significant role in cinema history. As the film credited with ushering in the 1950's 3-D movie craze, this "STYLE B" poster was used to explain to the general public what the 3-D film process entailed (unlike the more conventional "STYLE A" version which focused primarly on the movie art).
Using a series of diagrams and representations of Polaroid Glasses , 3-D Cameras and Filtered Projectors, the poster shows how the NATURAL VISION 3-DIMENSION CAMERA can film the image of a pouncing lion and transform it into a lifelike 3-D image projected onto the Motion Picture Screen. Various steps of the process are lettered A thru D and a legend on the right explains every step of the process. An additional diagrammed box helpfully explains how the human eye and the "Brain Eye or Occipital Vortex" works as well ! Film's credits and stylized logo are included in an inserted box on the bottom left and the well-know NATURAL VISION 3-DIMENSION logo is included in the top headline.
BWANA DEVIL, an action / adventure film about railway workers facing the perils of Africa, stars ROBERT STACK , BARBARA BRITTON and NIGEL BRUCE. Directed by ARCH OBLER.
